Stephen Curry fell hard, flipping over in the air and crashing his head into the court in the Golden State's Western Conference finals game against Houston on Monday night.
Curry jumped in the air as Trevor Ariza was about to go up for a shot.
Ariza saw him and stopped abruptly, causing Curry to be upended in midair when he crashed into Ariza's shoulder. His head hit the court and it propelled him up and back onto the floor where he remained for several minutes before walking off the court.
Curry was called for a foul on the play and Ariza made both shots to extend Houston's lead to 57-36 with about six minutes until halftime. (Check here to see the final score.)
The Warriors at first said Curry suffered a head contusion and that his return to the game was questionable. But after undergoing tests, Curry returned to the court with 5:58 remaining in the third quarter. (Source: SI.com)
